A claim for an injury from an accident caused by a motorist driving dangerously should seek an Injury solicitor in West Dorset
The local district of West Dorset is situated in England and it is the location of a crackdown by Dorset Police on motorists who drive dangerously. The crackdown has come after a string of complaints made by the community of West Dorset. Dorset Police have called the crackdown, No Excuse, and it has focused on targeting reckless and dangerous driving behaviour in West Dorset.
The complaints by West Dorset residents have been fuelled by the number of accidents on the road that have happened this year. 19 people have died on roads in Dorset to date this year and the most recent incident when a motorbike rider lost control and hit a parapet while travelling through the Beaminster Tunnel.
A dedicated team of police officers will be educating drivers on a full-time basis as part of the No Excuse campaign on how to driver safer. Various local media outlets have also joined patrolling police officers in the area to see how often dangerous driving acts are committed.
A total of 900 complaints about speeding and careless driving were made by residents in Dorset throughout 2013. The Dorset Police have said that they will be using both education and enforcement to reduce the five most common causes of road accidents. These include excessive speeding, distracted drivers using mobile devices, driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, careless driving and failing to wear a seatbelt.
In particular, Dorset Police have said that they have issued over 3000 infringement notices for driving while operating a mobile phone in the last three years. An officer from the police has said that generally, the West Dorset area is peaceful and quiet but there are still road accidents occurring here that are caused by dangerous driving behaviour.
